We are not normally lentil eaters, but I decided to try this recipe because it was cheap, easy and looked good. It was fantastic! I sprinkled it with tabasco-vinegar sauce and it was even better! Next I'm going to try making a sandwich with it. Thanks Cornelia for the great recipe!
This is a delicious way to prepare lentils! I have fond memories of eating lentils as a child - my mother often would order lentil soup at restuarants and I always snuck a taste. This recipe is so tasty and unique- even the lentil haters in the bunch enjoyed them this way. Very clear instructions, and makes a ton of lentils - served as a side dish, I could easily get 15 servings out of this. Thanks!
Excellent recipe. I added some garlic and cumin powder and had some chile sauce on the side. It was great over rice and served with a tortilla. Lots left over for the freezer for later use. Thank you Cornelia.
These are wonderful!!! What a great flavor. I did a crock pot version, using a mix of yellow and green split lentils. I mixed the salt and all the spices (I doubled the ginger) with the lentils in my 5 qt. crock pot, poured the honey on, added the onions, poured the water in, added the bay leaf, and cooked on HIGH for 4 1/2 hours. The lentils were perfect! I used 5 1/2 cups water, and it absorbed it all. I read a lot of reviews, and I also added 4 strips of cut up, pre-cooked bacon to the lentils, when they had about 2 hours left to cook. My husband put Sriracha sauce on his, but I just ate mine plain, and we had it over write rice. This is a keeper. Thanks!
Another winner from the MWL Cookbook! A great dinner with a salad and some biscuits. We like the flavor of bacon, so before baking, I stirred in 4 slices of chopped cooked bacon (which is in the original recipe in the cookbook). The recipe is great as is, but next time I might tweak it some and increase the amounts of onion, mustard, and soy sauce. Especially if I decide to leave out the yummy bacon. :)
This is one of my favorites. As has been said, it makes a TON. For some reason every time I made this one of my girlfriends would stop by. She somehow knew it was cooking! Great flavor.
Great lentil recipe. Slightly sweet, perhaps too sweet for those who like traditional savory lentils. Just what we were looking for. Great served over rice with pork tenderloin medallions on the side.
Almost a great replacement for baked beans. Added real maple syrup instead of honey - great!
